Samsung is baking big camera firmware for the Galaxy S23 series?

Ahead of the release, a reliable source revealed that Samsung is preparing a big camera firmware for the Galaxy S23 series. Earlier, the same source claimed that the company may release a camera optimization update to its latest flagships in late March.
CheckFirm detected the latest test build for the Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone, which bears PDA versions S918NKSU1AWC6 for South Korea and S918BXXU1AWC6 for India. Since the Korean builds appear to be a regular security update, the Indian build may be just the opposite.
Judging from the test build number, the Galaxy S23 series’ next global firmware may not only bring a security patch. As the bootloader alphabet has changed to U for Indian build, the next update is most likely to include under-the-hood changes such as rumored camera improvements.
Apart from the claims of the tipster, there’s no info available regarding Samsung’s next OTA for the Galaxy S23 series. As consumers continue to share their feedback and complain about emerging issues with camera performance and some others, the company will surely apply them in its future moves.
